Keeping Young Smiles Healthy

Your child’s oral health plays a major role in how their future smile will develop. That’s why our team emphasises preventive techniques and oral hygiene education, providing kids with the tools they need to have strong and healthy teeth.

Services We Offer

Here are some of the services we offer that promote optimal oral health in children:

Dental Sealants
A sealant is made up of a transparent, film-like material that the dentist applies to the surface of back teeth. This material quickly adheres to the grooves and ridges embedded in the chewing surfaces of the teeth. A protective barrier is formed that keeps decay-producing bacteria away from tooth surfaces, helping to decrease the risk of tooth decay.

Exams and X-rays

Regular evaluations are essential to monitor your child’s oral development and detect any concerns or problems in the earlier stages.

Dental Fillings

Identifying cavities or dental decay early on is vital for our young patients. We encourage you to bring your child in for regular visits starting at 12 months of age.

Fluoride Treatments

Fortified enamel is more resistant to decay. A fluoride application can protect kids’ teeth against cavities and also reverse early tooth demineralisation.
Gentle Cleanings
Our warm and friendly hygienists love working with kids. During your child’s cleaning, a hygienist will discuss the importance of adopting good oral hygiene habits including tooth brushing and flossing. Your child also will be shown new ways to maintain a clean smile.


If your child plays a sport, it’s vital to protect their mouth against trauma or injury with a mouthguard. We provide custom-made mouthguards that safeguard the mouth and teeth. Mouthguards can be made in an array of colours!

Orthodontic Evaluations

By monitoring your child’s bite development, your dentist can offer interceptive orthodontic treatment, potentially preventing more complex procedures in the future.
